Twitter Is Afraid To Ask What This Japanese Mascot Is Supposed To Be

By Mustafa Gatollari

If there's a country that really takes pride in their mascots, it is Japan.  I don't know what it is about the culture or the country, but in a mascot-off between any other country, I know that the land of the rising sun will take the top prize every single time just for their sheer enthusiasm in crafting some of the most ridiculously awesome mascots the world has ever seen. I mean, just look at this thing.

And it looks like they'll come up with a mascot to sell just about anything. Licorice? Let's come up with a mascot. A toothbrush? Mascot. Tire cleaner? Well I've got a marketing tool for you and it begins with a "ma" and ends with a "scot".
